Jeeps have been around since early 1940. They were developed because the government felt pretty sure that we would be going to war soon and we needed a very good reconnaissance and scout vehicle. The military notified carmakers that they were invited to participate in the competition to design the ideal scout car. There wasn’t much time allowed for the contest so only a small number of companies actually entered a design and built a prototype. The American Bantam Car Company and Willys-Overland were the only two manufacturers who were able to present a completed “Jeep” in the forty-nine days allotted for the contest.

The 1950s and 60s changed America completely. Rock replaced jazz and big band as the dominant form of popular music. The Korean and Vietnamese conflicts made Americans question their nation’s role in the world. New economic opportunities combined with massive social changes allowed women and racial minorities to escape from their traditional roles. And, in the automotive world, cars would transform from utilitarian machines to expressions of the owner’s status and personality.
From those two decades emerged what make up the bulk of todays’ classic cars: the Mustang, the Camaro, the GTO, the Barracuda, the AMX, the Thunderbird, the Charger, and, of course, the king of them all, the Corvette. These vehicles from a bygone era were instrumental in defining the American spirit, and each is highly sought after by eager collectors.
